  •   Weak support - we only have a few dozen knots in Wikidata right now, do we really anticipate having many more? Is it really justified to have a specific property just for this? Though I agree it's a good use of the mathematical expression datatype! ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:13, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
